"shepard smith reporting." >> good friday from the necessary deck where we're monitoring breaking news. officials in mexico are saying that doctors are treating people for radiation exposure, and hhre's the thinking. those people may have been connected to a truck theft that happened in mexico over the weekend. this, -- well a couple of days ago. the truck was stolen from a gas station, inside the truck, titanium 60, and that, according to the authorities, can make you sick and kill you. but it was in protective housing. the thieves took it out of the housing, and when they did, doctors said these people are in danger of dying. police have reportedly blocked access to a hospital now where
12:01pm
staffer are treating these patients who may be involved with that theft. it's in a town 60 miles north and east of mexico city. authorities there have since recovered the radio active material and the stolen truck, but no one knew where the people were. will carr is live with the later. we know the thinking these may be the people who stole the truck. what have you learned? >> reporter: authorities have been saying this could happen, that whoever came in touch with this dangerous radio active element could show up at a hospital, so now the reports out of mexico that six people have shown up in the hospital in pachuca, mexico, a report that one is throwing up and -- dizzy, signs of radiation poisoning. we don't knoll how or if they're actually linked to this stolen can he bat 6 -- cobalt 60. but on machine the truck that was transferring the material
12:02pm
was stolen. we don't know if the thief knew the truck had cobalt 60 inside but the truck was found this. the container was found a half mile from the truck. the container was open, and they found the cobalt 60 so somebody was exposed to this and now we have these sick showing up. >> this cobalt, it can kill you. >> that's right. it's dangerous. and this is the stuff you could potentially make a dirty bomb with. authorities say that even if you come in tough with it for a matter of minutes it could be fatal. authorities don't think the puck was at risk when they found it on thursday but they're taking extra precautions. >> let's bring in dr. steven garner, chairman of radiology at new york methodist hospital. top expert on disaster
12:03pm
preparedness. he is a friend of the program and a good man. doctor, nice to talk to you. this stuff is serious. >> this is super stuff. not just a small amount of radiation. this is something that if you're exposed to even a few seconds, it can kill you. >> we talk about how whoever stole this truck and opened this container, could be contaminated. but it could be anybody who walked by, right? >> anybody walked by. the closer to the material, the more like you'll get sick from it. and there are predictable signs and symptoms. the first thing is vomiting and dizzy, and we got a report that at least one person is dizzy and vomiting. >> what is your sense of the sort of distance from this now open in the atmosphere cobalt 60 -- do you need to be a couple of feet from it? could you be 50 yards? >> within half a block. if you walk by, you could -- you could die from this.
12:04pm
usually can till you within 24 hours. it's kind of a rapid, predictable course, with nausea, vomiting, seizures, and -- under lodge cal system. >> we have a google map of the hospital where the folks were brought in we're told there are six of them would any hospital anywhere have the capabilities to treat someone with radiation sickness or is this specialized. >> since 9/11 we have on the doors of most of the emergency rooms detectors, so this kind of radiation would set those off and they'd go crazy. i don't know what the story is out there, but that's the reason most hospitals do it, because you can't smell it. you have no idea you're next to something that can kill you. these -- they don't have the cobalt with them, the hospital is going to miss it. this is not the radiation where particles stick to thunder skin -- stick to your skip or clothing. atit goes through you like x-ra.
12:05pm
and in that regard, the hospital would not pick it up. >> we're waiting for more information out of mexico. good to talk to you. thank you. >> now the continuing coverage of the death of nelson mandela, people around the globe are paying tribute as south africa prepares for more than a week of funeral events.

12:20pm
they stopped construction. they've pulled one out of every three government vehicles off the roads. they banned fireworks, called off 40 events for the time being. it's a mess, and you can see there's not much visibility anywhere. look at this on the big monster. that is shanghai, and you can barely see through it. this is long the waterway, a person said the city actually tastes like smoke. pollution is a huge problem in china and has been. health officials say this level of smog is dangerous for anybody and everybody but especially for people with a heart condition and lung condition. for them this can be really deadly. the smog -- they're blaming this an owl the pollution was of the construction and stagnant weather, along the freeways. some parts are saying the smog levels are ten times government standards for what is safe to breathe in. shanghai, a mess today. here at home, officials are asking the libyan government to investigate the killing of an american in benghazi.
12:21pm
the state department has identified the victim as 33-year-old ronald smith. officials say he had been teaching chemistry at benghazi's international school since last year. students are calling him an amazing person and a much loved teacher. one u.s. official says somebody shot and killed smith as he was jogging yesterday, days before he was supposed to go home for christmas. a libyan security official says the shooting happened near an american outpost. a few days ago al qaeda's american spokesman told libya to attack american targets as revenge for u.s. special forces grabbing an al qaeda suspect off the streets of tripoli in october and taking him out of the country. christopher griffith is in washington. nice to see you. >> good afternoon. >> a tragedy certainly. when you go to areas like this, these things can happen, and the state department warns you of that in advance. >> yes, absolutely.
12:22pm
first off, we don't know exactly who killed mr. smith. but when you look at this incident, certainly reminiscent of the killing of ambassador stephens. >> how is it reminiscent of that? >> he put his life on the line to build a better syria and has now lost the life because of the chaos in sierra we have not done enough to prevent. >> how are we supposed to prevent it? >> the syrian government is now almost three years after the revolution that overthrew gadhafi. they have american support and there's a government there, anae sent civil society that wants to work with us. the u.s. administration agreed to work with the brits and italians to provide support to build a security force to stabilize syria, but a that won't kick off until spring next year, three years after the revolution. >> there's an argument that sadly the united states cannot solve all the problems around the world, and sadly, when good americans go places to try to do good things, sometimes they lose their life doing it, and for it
12:23pm
to become a political situation where we start blaming administrations for not working with people, seems almost unfair. >> well, this is a question of an opportunity that we have. and the idea -- as a matter of fact, yes, there's dangerous situations. this is one, and it's tragic. but there's an opportunity to do more to work with the libyan government to build the future, both the prime minister and the libyan people want. and it's important to point out in the last couple of months there has been tremendous fighting on the streets of libya, and the context of that, the libyan people have taken to the streets, stood up against the mill lit ya and they want our support, as does the libyan government. the administration is moving to provide more support but we need to do more. >> christopher griffin with us from the foreign policy initiative. nice to see you. thank you so much. you. >> all right. the site where paul walker died in a fiery car crash is now part of a crime scene.

12:30pm
the floor of the new york stock exchange went silent this morning to honor nell son mandela. flags are flying at half sad odd ounited nations, and mourners have been leaving flowers near the south african consulate in new york city. doctors say he had been sick with a lung infection for nearly a year. a vehicle left johannesburg with his body this morning. you can see the south african flag draped over his coffin. jonathan hunt is here with more. a lot of gestures of reconciliation. >> nelson mandela talked so often about the need for forgiveness, for the south africa as a nation, but he also took many personal individual actions that proved he was going to walk that walk as well as talk the talk. for instance, here, that is his inauguration as president in 1994. he invited three of the white
12:31pm
prison guards who had been among those holding him captive for 27 years. then after he was inaugurated, one of the first things he did in 1994 was go and see the widow of this woman. look at this guy. hfvervold. conceived apartheid, yet nelson mandela sat down for tea and doughnuts with that man's widow. the prosecutor who appeales for the death penalty in mandela's 1963 trial, in 1995, nelson mandela invited him to lunch. >> wow. he used sports and sports fans to really unite the country. >> you and i talk about this on foxnews.com last night, shep, when this news was breaking. this picture -- look at this. this is nelson mandela with the captain of the 1995 rugby world
12:32pm
cub winning team. that might just strike you as a false picture. so much more than that. rugby has always been a religion in south africa. it's always been an entirely white religion up to that moment. nelson mandela, showing up for the final. we have video of nelson mandela on the field presenting the world cup to his captain, who himself was a child of apartheid. himself said he grew up thinking that black people were second class citizens. yet nelson mandela, when he walked into the pitch, changed south africa. listen to the welcome he got. >> all the teams -- >> 35,000 people in that stadium on that day, 99% of them white. started chanting, "nelson, nelson, nelson." and maintenance of those people are the same ones who believed he was rightfully imprisoned for
12:33pm
so long. many called him a terrorist, and there they were chants his name. that more than anything was the moment that south africa changed. >> i know automatic the blogs are talking about what people used to say about mandela, the terms used for him. people's thoughts and attitudes have changed as they realize who that's guy is. >> certainly has. >> come over here with me. sharlene smythe is an authorized nelson mandela biographer and is joining us live. we tried to talk to you by phone yesterday but the connection was bad. there's some irony here, jonathan, in that nelson mandela was not a big fan of pomp and circumstance, and he's about to get a show for the world. >> but he is, but i think that he would hope that what would happen is that the world would learn some lessons from his life and his death, and perhaps we
12:34pm
would do more about being kind to each other. certainly he -- one of most important things we can learn from him is to make your enemy your friend. they had to do that in prison. it was the only way they would get goods smuggled to them. so when he came out he continued with that. making -- reaching outer to those who hated black people, and he made every south african feel safe. we felt we could trust him. he felt that this person cares for us as people. he doesn't see us as a color or a class or category. in fact he hated that sort of thing. he sees us as people. >> sharlene, i read an interesting column in 2011 in a south african newspaper where the editor wrote that we may not be quite ourselves as south africans without nelson mandela. where is the country now without
12:35pm
him? where does it go? >> i actually think that the country is in a very good space, because i think that south africa has portrayed nelson mandela. the fought for not only freedom for our people, not only the ability to vote but economic freedom, for opportunity for everyone. but instead the new rulers of south africa have acted like they're apartheid rulers. selfish, corrupt, and they are interested in self-aggrandizement and acquiring money and riches, and hopefully mandela's passing will make us reflect as south africans how have we betrayed hip, and the people of the world, if you care about nelson mandela, if you thought he had any influence, what are you doing to make your friend out off your enemy? what are you doing to help others? , actually thing he is dying at
12:36pm
an important time. next year will be 20 years since south africa got its democracy. his funeral will be the day before a very important historical anniversary in south africa that relates to the liberation struggle. and this creates problems for the existing government, because south africans are going to look at them and think, you are not the people we want. you are not mandela. you are corrupt. >> but presume zuma is up for election for a second time, and i wonder if his dying might force people to think about this reality and maybe change government there. is that possible possibility in your estimation? >> i'm not sure it's a change of government but certainly going to create huge problems bus south africa is going back to racial division, which was really backwards, and particularly with political parties.
12:37pm
i think this is going to pose challenges for all political parties. how do we act more like mandela, how do we create real change instead of being pseudo politicians, fake change. a world without leaderred at the moment. >> charlene smith, authorized mandela biographer. thank you. >> thank you. >> next, different kind of hero. here in the united states. remember batkid? set to make a big return tomorrow bus this time he won't be fighting the bad guys. the details just ahead.
12:38pm
12:39pm

12:42pm
sectors. the jobless rate has not been this low since november of 2008. the white house obviously these numbers are proof the economy is getting better. critics warn low unemployment means the federal government may cut back on economic stimulus which could force the stock market to take a hit. chris wallace is live on capitol hill, celebrating a milestone. chris has been doing "fox knossos" for ten years. hart to believe. we have been stuck with you for ten years. >> i hope it's not stuck. we're going to have a little piece at the end of the show on sunday, taking a look bat at the highlights and lowlights of the last ten years. i'm sure you feel this, shep, with your show. just amazing over the course of a decade who you get to talk to, where you get to go. the adventures you go on, and i'm so grateful to have had the opportunity. >> tell me the lowlights. >> you probably know most of

those as well. you'll see them. the good, the bad, and some surprises along the way. >> what do you make of this business on current topics? >> well, you mean in terms of the unemployment rate? >> yes. >> you're exactly right. it's great news. 7%. 203,000 jobs created. the latest upgraded numbers for the last quarter, 3.5% growth. this is not a huge, robust, roaring recovery, but does seem to be picking up some steam. some people say, gosh, fed is going to ease off the ac segue racing. the whole point is to get to happen. get the economy going, and if we have to have lower stock prices to get millions employed, most of wuss say that's a trade well worth making. >> to look at one month is nose right. the right thing is to look at the trends and the trend were
12:44pm
awful. looks like we have a new one now, and if that's the case, if everyone spends more money, the economy grows and everything finally comes out of the slump. >> yeah. i don't know that we're quite there yet. >> the goal. >> headed in the right direction. >> all right. how is obamacare coming along? got the web site fixed or mostly. >> well, they got part of it fixed. to take the amazon example, you can go and browse and choose the book, wow just can't bay for it. they talk about the back end of if it's some obscure thing. it's a cash register. kind of an important thing. and millions of people canceled. still got a lot of problems and we'll see if that it going to get better or not. we'll report it. >> i'm curious about your take on the politics. republicans grab ahold of this and say this is an issue for us. democrats are starting to say, you just wait. people are about to get understand and by mid-terms this is a plugs for democrats.
12:45pm
>> i have an absolutely open mind. i decent know how you can predict. just be an individual decision. million of people will have experiences with this. we'll see whether they get better health care, whether it's more or less expensive, whether they can see the doctor they'd like to see or not, and it will be a big role in the 2014 election, but depending on that experience, either a big plus for democrats or a big minus and a big plus for republicans. we'll have to wait and see and report it. >> this sunday we'll be watching you, ten years, chris wallace. he'll talk with senator rand paul about obamacare. detroit's bankruptcy, and amazon's plan to start delivering packages with drones. i don't know if that as much a plan as an idea. or maybe even a publicity stunt. i'm not sure. but i'm sure chris will drill down. the republican filibustered for 14 hours to protest u.s. drone
